Insurance Triumph

You may have followed the drama of last week and insurance. You can read it here if you need to catch up! It was exhausting and stressful. The recovery from three days of no ABA was also difficult. Super fun! I definitely did not want to spend last week that way. However, if this is …

Seasons

Living with Disappointment

“Life isn’t always fair. That is something that my mother often told me. As a kid, I expected things to be fair. Early childhood predisposes you to that concept, everyone gets a cupcake, an award, but we aren’t all the same. We won’t have the same experience even if we go through the exact same …

Is it CMV?

I’ve talked about the process for C being diagnosed as HoH. I guess now is the time to talk about what happened next. Moving forward. In October, while I was pregnant, I flew to see my parents who were visiting L.A. During that time I was able to get acquainted with a cousin who is …

Those Hard Days

It has been almost two weeks since E started back at school. He has had no negative behaviors in the classroom and on Friday the teacher invited him to share lunch with the class the week after Labor Day! This is all fabulous, but. Last night, I was on the phone with a tribe member …
